During the CUFP workshop, people talked about attracting developers
The Haskell web site was compared to the Python (I think) web site.
I believe the pitch for Haskell was much weaker than the Python pitch.
I took a stab at a few 'marketing' statements for Haskell. My
intention is to stimulate debate because I do feel there are
unnecessary barriers to recruitment. I do not expect my suggestion to

across the FP community where practical, so that the strength and
coherence of the whole community and its technology is appreciated
rather than highlighting a specific weaknesses of any individual part.
PS - Great Erlang meeting; thank you everyone for the welcome,
enthusiasm and support.
